Smoke Rise Academy of the Arts Presents Musical Drama Annie JR. in September
The elementary actors of Smoke Rise Academy of the Arts (SRAA) drama department will stage the musical drama Annie JR. Friday, September 18 through Sunday, September 20. In observance of COVID safety recommendations, all performances will be presented outside at Smoke Rise Baptist Church, 5901 Hugh Howell Road in Tucker. Attendance is free for the public with no tickets required.
Based on the popular comic strip and adapted from the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, Annie JR. features everyone’s favorite little redhead in her very first adventure. With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
Annie JR. is a fun family show suitable for all ages. Show times are 7:00 p.m. on Friday; 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. on Saturday; and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday.
In observance of COVID safety regulations, seating is arranged for social distancing, and masks are required for all attendees. Each show will have concessions available for purchase during intermission.
